Hi, with the above, samba has nowhere to map the users to, if you don't 
want to use the 'ad' backend, then you need to use the rid backend:

idmap config *:backend = tdb
idmap config *:range = 70001-80000
idmap config ETI:backend = rid
idmap config ETI:range = 500-40000

Changing the numbers to match your requirements.

If you are using samba4 as the AD DC, then you do have rfc2307, but you 
will need to give yours users a uidNumber and your groups a gidNumber. 
Information about this is available on the samba wiki and elsewhere on 
the internet.
